    Dinesh D'Souza's new documentary Death of a Nation seems to be unfortunately collapsing at the box office. It has lost 20% of the theaters in just its second week, and is doing about half as well as "2016 Obama's America" did at this point in that movie's life. Click on the link and see the consistent daily drop-off in box office receipts. It opened on more than 1000 theaters, it is now in slightly over 800.
  • Michael Moore’s ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Trailer Aims To Expose Trump’s ‘Evil Genius’

    “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Michael Moore’s polemic about George W. Bush and the War on Terror, remains the highest-grossing documentary of all time. If the national mood was splintered when that movie opened in 2004, it’s nothing compared to what it is now, almost two years into Donald Trump’s presidency. So, naturally, Moore is channeling his most famous film to explore that exact subject: “Fahrenheit 11/9” seeks to “bring Trump down” before November’s midterm elections. HuffPost has an exclusive look at the first trailer for “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a reference to the day Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election. It...

    Rotten Tomatoes gives it a "0%" rating from critics. They also give very low ratings to movies life "Facing the Giants". So this type of rating was actually encouraging. The Left must really dislike it (usually they at least give 10% to 15% to make it seem somewhat fair, but they couldn't even do that this time.

    Netflix will not release a documentary about the life of Louis Farrakhan after all, despite the controversial Nation of Islam leader’s claim that it would hit the streaming giant on Wednesday, a company spokesperson told Fox News on Tuesday. “This film will not be released on Netflix. Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not. We apologize for any confusion this has caused,” the Netflix spokesperson said. Netflix issued the statement after Fox News asked about a tweet sent by Farrakhan to promote the film. “My dear viewers and listeners,...

    The cast and crew of a new documentary pose together on the famous red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, ahead of a screening of their new film on French migrant rights. It tells the story of an olive farmer, Cedric Herrou, who's helped thousands of migrants cross the French-Italian border. His aid work has landed him in court a number of times, but has helped him become a symbol for activists fighting asylum law. The 38-year-old olive farmer, who stars in the documentary, says he won't let the glamour of the film industry go to his head: "I'm going...

    Isn't it hard to believe how a beautiful actress wasn't taken seriously as the genius inventor that she was?Along with digital video and consumer drones — cf. this week’s Leaning into the Wind — one of the greatest boons to documentaries over the past decade has been previously unheard recordings of deceased people, the latest beneficiary being Alexandra Dean’s excellent Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story. Tapes of Lamarr from 1990 are among the primary source for exploring her life, which was a prime example of how it’s not always easy being the best at something — and when you’re the...

    Notorious race imposter Rachel Dolezal will not go away. In 2015, the 40-year-old civil rights activist was catapulted into the national spotlight after she was exposed for lying about her African-American background. Though she later admitted both of her biological parents were white, Dolezal attempted to defend herself by claiming to identify as “trans-black.” The fact that she has refused to change her position has resulted in widespread backlash. And it has apparently impacted her children. On Wednesday, Netflix released a clip of their upcoming original documentary titled The Rachel Divide. Vulture reports award-winning filmmaker Laura Brownson followed Dolezal and...

    Full title: Bob Hope was determined to entertain American troops and give back to the country he loved, says daughter From vaudeville to Hollywood, Bob Hope conquered it all as a beloved showman — but his greatest achievement was entertaining the troops. At the time of his death in 2003 at age 100, the New York Times reported the film, TV and stage star performed nearly all of his 400 radio programs at military bases and embarked on annual tours where he delighted American servicemen with his sidesplitting monologues. Hope even took time to befriend weary soldiers and, as his...

    A woman has been jailed after duping film-makers into believing she could get them behind-the-scenes access to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Ann Leuser fraudulently claimed to have a close connection with the former US secretary of state and tried to enter into a contract for a fly-on-the-wall documentary that proposed a series of payments totalling £120,000. The 56-year-old, of Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, even paid an actress £5,000 to impersonate Clinton’s director of communications Jennifer Palmieri over the phone.

  • Will Ken Burns' twisted version of Vietnam War endure?

    “No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now.” Richard Nixon’s 1994 post-war observation remains as prescient as ever. With the release of the Ken Burns/Lynne Novick epic 10-part PBS documentary on the war last month, it is safe to say that the misreporting and misremembering have only been compounded and exacerbated. For those among us who expected favorable treatment for the American effort to halt the spread of communism and a serious look at our South Vietnamese allies beyond the recycled shibboleths of their leaders as corrupt...
  • The documentary -- "Mully" is a must-watch: Remarkable story of Kenyan who saved 10,000 children

    Augusta Free Press ^ | 09/27/2017 | Rosa Whitaker
    Charles Mutua Mulli, one of the most interesting and inspirational people you’ve probably never heard of, woke up in his family’s hut in a tiny village in Kenya one morning in 1955 and discovered that his parents had taken his brother and fled. Charles had been abandoned. He was 6 years old. The tale of that child’s experiences over the ensuing 60 years is told in a compelling new documentary titled “Mully” (he later changed the spelling of his surname), directed by the actor/filmmaker Scott Haze. It is a rags-to-riches story of extraordinary dimensions – i.e., Mully literally went from...

    Steve Sherman and VVFFH are reviewing each episode, pointing out the falsehoods, misrepresentations, outright lies and propaganda as they come up. Here is a summary of the first episode: Segment One: (1945-1959) Fails to mention that Ho Chi Minh was a Comintern (Soviet) agent for nearly 20 years, not a nationalist as portrayed in the documentary. If he was a true nationalist, he would have worked with the other anti-French nationalists (VNQDD, Dai Viet, Catholic, Cao Dai, etc.) instead of betraying them to the French Surete to be imprisoned or killed. He also murdered many anti-French nationalists and Vietnamese patriots...
